I had a horrible experience at Hostal Sardinero - the room assigned to my group was not what we booked (2 beds instead of 3) and the proprietor was incredibly rude. When we showed him the booking and requested the proper accommodations the proprietor cancelled our reservation and asked us to leave, saying "it wasn't his problem." This occurred at... More

The absolutly advantage of this hotel is the place - it is situated in the heart of Madrid - so it is very close to all sightseeings. The owener of the hotel, who is the receptionist in one person, is very kind and helpful. Room was clean. I think it is one of the best choice if you don´t want... More

This Hotel is in the best location for all the sights of Madrid. Walking distance to all the shops, good restaurants and sights. Jimmy and staff amazingly helpful and full of advice and good recommendations. Rooms were clean and spacious and well worth the price!

Staff is great. Nice place with convenient location. Easy to walk to major plazas, museums and Retiro Park, cafés and restaurants nearby. Jimmy at front desk is extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. City tour bus stops about two blocks away. Easy walk to Metro and train station.

We stayed there for five nights in May 2013 and didn't have to use public transportation to and from any sight in the city! Everything is in walking distance - Plaza Santa Ana is next door, Plaza Mayor, Plaza del Sol, Retiro Park, Prado, Thyssen, etc. The hotel is very well maintained and clean (towels were changed and the room...

We stayed for four nights and found the place very central for places to visit. We walked up from the station and found it no bother. The hostal is on the third floor and there is a lift up. You can not get breakfast here, but there are lots of places nearby to try. The room has a safe, shutters... More

I have stayed twice at Hostal Sardinero as it is very good value for your money. The location could not be better, only a 15 minute walk to Museo del Prado and Reina Sofia and Atocha train station. The Hostal is also surrounded by nice bars and restaurants so you are never too far away from a nice tapa! The... More

Well located, quiet and very clean. This helpful economical hostel was an excellent choice for visiting Madrid galleries and restaurants. Yes it uphill from atocha station but who would want to stay around the station and it is close to metro. We had a different experience to Angrod Telrunya.

Me and my wife stayed here for 5 nights. Centrally located, clean, decent, good room size. The owner is helpful and tried to make our stay as good as possible. The room is cleaned everyday. Great value for the money. I do recommend it!

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
